The Association for Good Clinical Practice in Nigeria (AGCPN) and the National Agency for Food and Drug Association Control (NAFDAC) invite you to the 2nd Clinical Trial Summit holding 26-29 May 2014 in Lagos. 

If you want to learn how to start clinical trials, how your facility can become a clinical trial site, how to write proposals and apply for funding, then this conference is for you. 

Representatives from NAFDAC and the National Health Research Ethics Committee (NHREC) will take part in the assessment of the current state of clinical trials in Nigeria. Particular focus will be paid to the status of regulatory and ethical standards/laws and regulations. 
The AGCPN will share experiences from the conduct of clinical trials (from the perspectives of Sponsor/CROs, Principal Investigators, Laboratories, Monitors and Auditors) highlighting updates, challenges and proposed solutions. This will be evaluated by comparison with the standards in other parts of Africa and the Asia Pacific region.

The participation of hundreds of senior-level executives from all aspects of the clinical development industry in Nigeria and abroad and national and international speakers makes the 2nd Clinical Trial Summit in Nigeria a unique networking opportunity for clinical trial professionals.
